Gym Jordan Seated on GOP Terror Probe? Win-Win!

One of many downfalls of the goppers is their inability to know their limits. Tonight, there is sure to be a cheer or two from MAGA Hat Nation with the appointment of Gym Jordan to the select committee charged with investigating the gopper siege on the capitol on January 6. They know that a semi-suited Jordan will dress down a bunch of liberal witnesses called to make Trump look bad with his Rand Paulian perspective distortions and injections of Fox News talking points. At least that's how they see it. What they don't realize is how ugly that kind of crap plays to everyone else who happens NOT to live on Planet Idiot. Every time Jordan mentions Black Lives Matter or Antifa, it will give a member of the majority a chance to remind him that the January 6 Parade of Filth arrived at the capitol from a MAGA rally and not a BLM protest. Gym can very possibly inspire sympathy for Black Lives Matter by failing to get anywhere with his attempts to smear them.

Further, the list of witnesses to be called are bound to be credible and respectable figures here in this galaxy. If you saw the fail of Matt "Indict Me" Gaetz trying give General Mark Milley the Fox News treatment in a lesser House hearing recently, multiply that times the number of witnesses in this terror inquiry. The math is not good for the White Nationalist Caucus.

Their problem is their sclerotic strategy of dominate, humiliate, distort. The problem is the attack to which Jordan was a party was an attack against the very Establishment a great number of people respect. Will it endear goppers to white suburban women when Gymmy shouts down uniformed police who were under attack on 1/6? The answer is no, but he'll give it his best shot. He's essentially there to serve as the attorney to the guy who is having trouble selling out his red state talking tour with Bill O'Reilly. Good luck to him.

With so much bleak news threatening the sky on the horizon with gopper attacks on the Democratic voting process, normal people will have to hope Team Trump pins themselves to the mat as many times as possible. Placing jordan on the 1/6 select committee promises to be just that.

1. I do understand your premise about how he may "look".......

because most of us do indeed see him as the bumbling oaf that he is.

However, I do not believe that those who were part of the Insurrection and many of the other 71 million who voted for TFG will see him that way. If they have not 'seen the light' at this point, I TRULY do not know anything that will change their minds.

3. But Planet MAGA isn't the majority

It's not about changing THEIR minds, but keeping any of the rudderless Americans with few stakes in the game from thinking "gee, these oafs have a point."
